Their Whole Lives Through.
Kids should feel great – body, mind and spirit. Disorders affecting the chemical processes in the body can cause a child to not only have physical problems, but social and emotional ones. Because the body’s glands control things such as growth, sexuality, weight management and energy levels, children and young adults may end up feeling different from their friends and peers, leading to isolation and low self-esteem. At AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, our experts in pediatric endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism focus on the whole health of every child, knowing that a single endocrine system disorder can have repercussions at many levels.
Pediatric Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Programs
Whether your child has type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes, the experts at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, are there for your family with the very best diabetes treatments and education in the region.
The formative years between birth and adulthood are characterized by tremendous changes. Our team of pediatric endocrinologists understand all too well that a child’s physiology is different from an adult's.
Metabolic diseases can range from amino acid disorders to thyroid problems. Fortunately, our pediatric endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism experts are leaders in the treatment of metabolic disorders in children.
